  1. Review All Unread Updates

    When there are unread updates, users have to click on every group and direct message one at a time to read the updates.

    In Slack, users have the ability to click an "All Unread" page and then view all the unread updates in one screen (and respond to them here as well).

    This saves users from many unnecessary clicking throughout the day and especially at the start of the day.

  2. Notification of members joining meeting late

    When I am hosting the meeting, while meeting has started, I dont see any notification for members who joins late. This should be supported.

  4. Status alert on Teams (like Skype)

    In Skype it is possible to set status alert of a user. Since we'll not use Skype Business anymore, this is a nice to have feature.

  7. Banner notification location

    I want to be able to choose the corner of the screen where I want banner notifications to be displayed. Currently the behavior between MacOS and Windows platforms are different and can not be changed. Please, be more loyal and let the user decide.
    Thanks.

  8. Option to Show Notifications even if Teams is in Focus

    Platform:
    Teams Desktop, Windows

    Suggestion:
    There should be some option(s) for showing notifications even if the Teams conversation in question is in focus. Maybe not Windows banner, alert sound, and an unread item activity all at once. But having just one of those configurable would be very helpful to avoid miscommunication.

    Problem:
    Suppose I have conversation open with Sam on one monitor, and am reading on another monitor. Windows focus is on Teams. If Sam sends me a message, I don't get a notification, an alert sound, or an unread message. That's fine if I look back at the conversation.…

  9. Provide option to change the notification sound

    Please provide user to select the notification sound. The default notification is very smooth. Sometime it gets missed also.

  10. Split Call Notification Global Options 3 ways: Call, Chat, Mention

    Please Split Call Notification Global Options 3 ways: Call, Chat, Mention. with all options each. Present config is not fun or productive. It is annoying, aggravating and disturbing of focus and productivity, personally and of co-workers. - Present status decrements the user experience of Teams App and Teams web. Tkx.

  13. Remove private chat reactions from the activity feed

    The activity feed does not show private chat messages but it does show private chat reactions. This is very confusing. Either the activity feed should show both private messages and private reactions or neither.

  16. in SKYPE one could set custom alert sounds - i dont see a way to do this in teams

    in SKYPE one could set custom alert sounds - i dont see a way to do this in teams. In skype you could pick a wav file or mp3 file to play when a certain action occurred. In teams you can only do "alert sound on/off" and you cant choose what that sound will be.

  17. Outlook Out-Of-Office message should sync across all apps

    It would be great if my Outlook out of office, synced with my status message on TEAMS. Including, linking alternative contacts. Ideally an Out-of-office message that works (and makes use of individual features) across all Applications.

  18. Can you please include "Mark as Read" option in your pop-up notifications.

    Can you please include "Mark as Read" option in your pop-up notifications. This will help to track how many unreaded messages we actually have left.
